Morning Roundup:

From The Washington Post: Lawmaker wants to shift some 'Race to the Top' funds to prevent teacher layoffs

A senior House Democrat proposed Wednesday to slice President Obama's Race to the Top fund and other school reform initiatives to help pay for a $10 billion measure to save education jobs.

From the Los Angeles Times: More California school districts edging closer to insolvency, state says

An immediate effect has been increased teacher layoffs. Fourteen districts in the state are classified as in especially dire condition, including Lynwood Unified School District in Los Angeles County.

From the Boston Globe: Changes to condom proposal promised

A week after Provincetown schools sparked a furor over a new condom policy, the superintendent has assured parents that school nurses would not dispense condoms to any student who asks, despite the open wording of the rule.
